How to Transfer a Car Title in Virginia

To introduce a car title in the state of Virginia, it’s a good idea to read these instructions, locate all the appropriate lines on the title, and read any instructions on the title before you start filling in the information.

Look for this information on the front of your Virginia title, near the bottom.

  1. Have the buyer print their name where it says “Buyer(s) name.” Have them print their address and city/state/zip code on the appropriate lines under that.
  2. On the next set of lines, fill in the odometer reading, the date you sold your vehicle, and the sale price.
  3. Sign your name where it says “Signature(s) of seller.” Print your name on the next line. If a second owner needs to sign and print their name as well, they can do it on the line below.
